As we look forward to football getting ever closer, let us take a look back as we rank the greatest quarterbacks in Big 12 history. It is no secret that the Big 12 is known for its exceptional quarterback play. If you want to win the conference, you better have a great quarterback.
Big 12 QBs have racked up four Heisman Trophies and eight Consensus All-America Team selections. The depth at the position, along with the adoption of the up-tempo, spread offense, has transformed the Big 12 into a quarterback-driven conference.
First, a few criteria when considering candidates. Due to conference realignment, only seasons actually played in the Big 12 are considered, and no the Big 8 does not count as an extension of the Big 12. Professional careers are not a factor and current Big 12 quarterbacks are not eligible. So, without further ado, hit next for the Big 12’s All-Time Top 5 Quarterbacks.
